!0:00 Opening

10:15 Takayuki Nagamine (Aichi University of Education) - Attitudes towards Japan English and its features. In this presentation, the presenter will seek ways of accounting for phonetic features in Japan English, taking into consideration the fluidity and flexibility that ELF has and ensures.

11:15 Patrick Ng (University of Niigata) - Enacting an ELF-informed teaching paradigm: The experience of one teacher. In this paper, the presenter will explore the strategies and paths to document the ways he switched to an English as Lingua Franca (ELF)-informed teaching paradigm.

13:15 Tricia Okada (Center for English as a Lingua Franca, Tamagawa University) - “How did we end up here?” - Filipino English Language Teachers in Japan. One of the effects of globalization is the demand for English teachers that has evolved not only from native speakers but also to include
non-native speakers. This change has paved the way for Filipinos to teach
the English language in Japan.

14:15 Alan Thompson (Gifu Shotoku Gakuen University) - ELF in Japan: selection and cooperative restructuring. This session will report on fieldwork at three authentic ELF environments in Japan, diverse in terms of purposes, event types, and participants (with their background experiences and language repertoires).
